This past Sun­day’s break­fast had an abun­dant out­lay of food, but, un­for­tu­nately, very few folk to en­joy it. Many reg­u­lars were thor­oughly missed but, un­der­stand­ably, the great spring seed­ing weather kept their noses to the grind­stone. Oth­ers were no doubt en­joy­ing the fine day and tak­ing part in other fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties, as were Art and I.

It was our plea­sure to at­tend the Vik­ing Beef 4-H Club’s Achieve­ment Day, where we watched two of our grand­chil­dren show their live­stock. We were very proud of how both grand­chil­dren did, but we did hear a rather hu­mor­ous story from the Vik­ing Grandpa which begs to be shared. Our two grand­chil­dren, Gra­cie (fourth year 4-H mem­ber) and Bar­rett (first year mem­ber), both had calves they were feed­ing and train­ing in prepa­ra­tion for their achieve­ment day and sale. Dur­ing the win­ter, the young­sters had a sys­tem in place where Gra­cie fed the calves one day and Bar­rett fed them the next day. Vik­ing Grandpa came along one day when it was Bar­rett’s turn to feed the calves. Vik­ing Grandpa ob­served that Bar­rett had put the feed out, but was shoo­ing Gra­cie’s calf away. Vik­ing Grandpa ques­tioned Bar­rett about what he was do­ing and Bar­rett re­sponded, “I want my calf to eat more – I want him to be fat­ter than Gra­cie’s calf!” Les­son to be learned: Do not un­der­es­ti­mate your smaller brother – he can find ways to get even.

Here are sev­eral dates that you might want to mark on your cal­en­dar. This Sun­day, May 8, is the day to go to Delia to help Char­lie Thomp­son cel­e­brate his 90th mile­stone birth­day at the Delia Drop In Cen­ter from 2:00-4:00 pm.

The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety will be hold­ing its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Mon­day, May 16 at 7:00 pm in the church base­ment. All are wel­come to at­tend this meet­ing.

The next Craigmyle pan­cake break­fast will be held on June 5. By then seed­ing should be fin­ished and, hope­fully, our reg­u­lars will be back for the last break­fast un­til the fall.
